    I've just noticed the new look on the Apple site - very nice!

    Is this how Leopard is going to be?

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing myself. So far I like the change!

    The Store is back up though and no surprise new products for us. :( ;)

    I am predicting yes, I think Leopard will have iTunes 7 scrollbars and a new GUI called "Illuminous", simillar to the iPhone operating system.

    Apple.com does look amazing; and it's pretty quick considering the hits it must be getting.

    I like it, clean and simple like always, but a change of pace is always nice on the eyes.

    Just finished taking a comprehensive browse through the site and it all looks very good! Changing things up every once and a while is a good thing, especially when you end up with results like this. Nice one Apple. :)

    bah, open .mac mail. there you have the new grey look on top and the old .mac mail look below. looks hideous. if that is good design then i'm missing something. also the mail window is wider than the grey apple.com tabs. differnet bleu shades under a dark grey. yak.....:eek:

    I drink the Apple coolaid as much as anyone, but the new look of the website is flat and boring. Minimalism isn't always better. I hope iTunes isn't updated to look that vanilla.

    It looks better than the old website. That's all I can say.

    It was definitely time for a new Apple website. It was more cluttered than the OS X UI...with still a lot of the candy UI from the original iMac days.

    Though...could it be any harder to find the Quicktime stuff now?

    I like it...and QT comes with iTunes so no problem there.

    I wonder why the UK site is the same...

    I meant the Quicktime page..used to have a tab at the top so you can find all the Quicktime trailers, content, etc

    I like the new site design; it feels much fresher.
    I liked the simple list of hardware but a site like this doesn't lose much functionality the way it has been designed.

    It's great...matches the retail stores much better. Not sure about the polished Apple logo yet...but it was definitely past time for a new look.

    Wow, I'm impressed by the search feature.

    Any idea how they did it? It's great.

    I think once one gets used to it, one will like it much better. I liked the old navbar, but I thought it was also kind of cluttery. Sometimes there were just soooo many buttons.

    On some pages, there's a mini sitemap like thing in the footer, which is reminiscent of the old navbar. That helps.

    I liked the old navbar. But I LOVE the new navbar. But I would have made it perhaps a bit lighter than the darker shade of grey.

    And agreed the new polished logo...I need more timet o digest that.

    Somewhat strangely, the Macintosh Products Guide still has the old look. I like the new look, and the search box is definitely impressive. It's like they've built Spotlight into the website.
